In front at the break

HT: Eastleigh 0 v 1 Chesterfield

The Spireites are a goal up and man up. Berry's strike has them in front. McCallum off for the hosts. Town have had lots of possession but the final ball has been lacking. Eastleigh had two good chances for Quigley and McCallum at 0-0.

For a foul on Oldaker.

McCallum receives his second yellow and the former Spireite is given his marching orders. Eastleigh down to 10-men. The first was for dissent and the second was for a foul on Naylor.


1-0 to Chesterfield on 38 minutes. Grigg slipped a good ball through to Berry, it was a tight angle, but he finished high into the net on his left peg. Two in two for Berry.

Mandeville slipped in a wonderful reverse pass into Naylor inside the area, but his first touch was heavy and the ball ran away from him.
